One thing we know: when it is all over, those of us who survive will find some form of meaning in it, writes Melanie Verwoerd.
There is no legal basis to declare Dudu Myeni a delinquent director – rather, she is being victimised, the former South African Airways chairperson's lawyer said on Wednesday.
Numsa suspects there is a secret plan to sell SAA "to someone waiting in the wings" and Fin24 tries to establish if this could indeed be the case.
Captain Grant Back, chairperson of the SAA Pilots' Association, confirmed to Fin24 on that rumours about SAA intending to close its pilot base in Cape Town, were true.
Unions say they are still none the wiser on what government plans to do to secure R2bn to help aid the business rescue process at embattled airline, SAA.
The SAA Pilots' Association will not go on strike until it has gone through the correct process, its chairperson tells Fin24.
The crisis at SAA has reached a “tipping point” threatening its survival, hence the application to have chair Dudu Myeni declared a delinquent director, says pilots’ association chair Jimmy Conroy.
OUTA and the South African Airways Pilots Association have filed a court application seeking to declare SAA chairperson Dudu Myeni a "delinquent director".
It would be unfair on her husband and children to use funds to travel to Johannesburg for an SAA court case that should not have anything to do with her, says Dudu Myeni.
If it takes job cuts to make SAA sustainable, the state-owned airline's highly regarded pilots could find alternative opportunities in a region like the Middle East, where there is a huge demand for pilots, says the chair of the SAA Pilots Association.
Following concerns over whether South African Airways would have been able to pay employees' salaries this month, it has now been confirmed that the embattled state-owned airline has the money available to do so - at least for January.
OUTA will only hear in December whether it has standing to be part of a case to have former SAA chair Dudu Myeni declared a delinquent director - but Myeni has, in the meantime, filed a new notice of motion regarding a tweet OUTA posted in October.
The board of South African Airways has backed its new interim CEO Zukisa Ramasia after the South African Airways Pilots Association criticised her appointment and threatened to go on strike.
Civil rights body OUTA and the SAA Pilot’s Association have outlined in court papers six allegations related to botched deals and other governance issues against Dudu Myeni.
